DPF Removal?? Please help!

Can I go to a exhaust shop and just have the DPF removed and a pipe welded in? I don't really want to change the sound of the truck and would like to keep it quite like stock.

I do know I will need a tuner.

Thanks and sorry if this has been answered. I am new to this and searched over an hour for the answer here and did not find it.

Again, thanks!

As long as you don't have a 13+ you DON'T have to have a tuner... And most shops won't do that for you because technically speaking they are modifying emissions and therefore breaking the law... I'll edit in some links for some reading for you..

It is a 2012. I visited the XDP website and it's very confusing as to how many SIMS you get with the pruchase. It doesn't say at all actually. Picture shows 3 but the thread says to buy 4. I dunno.

Doing this will net the same benefits as the more expensive alternatives?

Will it throw codes without a tuner?

You can simply just unplug the EGR? Why doesn't everyone just do that.

Buy a smarty jr or an H&S tuner and tune it. Dump the whole exhaust system with a turbo back 5" kit with a muffler. Better mpg, better EGT, no CEL.

I am pretty sure it is 4 total.

To a degree. If you get a turbo back system I also think you are removing the CAT which will yield less restriction. What I would do is have your DPF removed and a pipe and flange bolted in in case you want to go back.

Yes it will, and will most likely derate. You will at least need sims.

You can simply just unplug the EGR? Why doesn't everyone just do that.

Being that you have a 2012, no you cannot. The truck will code and derate without a tuner. 2007-2010 and some 2011 trucks you could do that with, but around when the H.O. motors came out, you are not able to do that anymore...
